What was your biggest misconception when you started LoL?

In my very first game (playing as Garen), I didn't understand why my friend was telling me to buy a bow (Last Whisper) as a sword user.

Oh I know the feeling pal.
Back in the days I began; Katarina was my first or second champ ever that I tried (lucky free week there) and I kept buying swords to her.
...I just couldn't understand at all how an dagger/blade using assassin would need Harry Potters hat....

I thought the game was like SC2, and that I had to micromanage minions and upgrade them and all that or we would lose every time. I quit for 2 years before a friend explained to me how wrong I was about that.


edit: note that it was one friend that showed me the game. He explained next to nothing. I quit the same night that I started. Someone else cleared things up and made this my most played game of the last several months...

"Why would you take ignite? Smite does 400 true damage instantly."

"Bows? On a guy with a sword? nty"

"Ghost lasts longer than flash"

-when oom, also still clicked them rather than QWER-
"Why isn't my first ability working? Second too?"

Randomly walking into other lanes, abandoning my current one to help push the other lane that was behind or just wasn't pushing. I got yelled at by smurfs for this a lot.

etc.

People play this game to have fun. I've learned that they play it to scream at other people.

I thought Shen was the Ryu Hayabusa of LoL but he turned out to be a support/tank.

"lets take this tower"

Not knowing the damage it did, I stand and take full turret shots until I realize it's doing a lot of damage but it's a little too late and I die.

Never buying boots walking around without any boots at around 30-40 minutes into the game and people are commenting about it and I just tell them lol waste of money.
